Marlins Hanley Ramirez Changes Tune, will Apologize for Lazy Play

| by Off The Record

Just a day ago, Florida Marlins all-world, no-hustle shortstop Hanley Ramirez was benched after he dogged it in the field the night before. He tried to run into the outfield to make a play on a short bloop, but couldn’t get there in time and then decided he liked soccer better.

The ball dropped and he Pele’ed one into the left-field corner. Sounds bad, right? Well it’s worse than that because he pulled a For Who, For What and lollygagged after the ball.

Hence, he was benched and then refused to apologize.

Well, today Hanley is singing a different tune. He says now that he will apologize to his Marlins teammates and his manager Fredi Gonzalez before Wednesday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

A police officer saw a young black couple drive by and pulled them over. What he did next left them stunned:

“I regret that this has gotten so ugly, it was not my intention to create a distraction,” Ramirez told ESPNDeportes.com.

Gonzalez told a Miami radio station earlier this morning that he “would be surprised” if Ramirez wasn’t in the lineup for Wednesday’s game. Guess it’s tough to bench a guy when they are so clearly your best position player.
